Apart from this, chief information commissioner Satyananda Mishra in his order in May ruled expenditure incurred by an individual on his or her treatment was private information. “The expenditure made by any individual on her treatment, in India or abroad, cannot be subjected to a matter on an RTI application,” Mishra said.
